Netanyahu/Lieberman Coalition

An alliance made in hell.

by Stephen Lendman

On January 22, Israeli parliamentary elections will be held. Netanyahu/Lieberman's Likud/Yisrael Beiteinu (Israel Our Home) looks likely to win.

Both men are world class thugs. They represent the worst of ideological extremism. They're hardcore racists. They want unchallenged regional dominance. They believe Israel has a divine right to terrorize Palestinians with impunity.

Lieberman's a serial felon. Charges against him included bribery, fraud, money laundering, breach of trust, and harassing witnesses.

Major accusations were dropped. Fraud and breach of trust remain. Reports suggest other charges may be added. Lieberman denies it.

Rogue coalition leadership shows the deplorable state of Israeli governance. Mafia bosses pale by comparison.

Respect for democratic values, rule of law inviolability, and peace demand throwing out the bums. Victory, not rejection, looks likely. Expect legitimate governance to take another major body blow.

Likud/Yisrael Beiteinu is a marriage made in hell. On December 25, Haaretz headlined " Likud's manifesto isn't worth the paper it wasn't written on," saying:

Weeks ahead of January elections, Likud's platform remains unpublished. At issue is Netanyahu's 2009 two-state pledge. He rhetoric was hollow. 

He, Lieberman, and likeminded hardliners oppose it. They want all valued Judea/Samaria areas Judaized. They want Palestinian rights spurned. They prioritize right wing extremism. Their base demands it.

Netanyahu delivers plenty of red meat. He radicalized his Christmas day message. He highlighted fake anti-Islamic existential threats. "Christians are persecuted in a routine manner, and there is little tolerance toward them," he claimed.

How so he didn't explain. He said they thrive in Israel. They "participate fully in the life of our country."

He and other hardliners spurn anyone not Jewish. Arabs are considered sub-human. "Judeo-Christian heritage," he claims is just a figure of speech.

Jerusalem he calls Israel's exclusive "eternal capital." The city is religiously important city for Christians, Muslims and Jews.
